and Arteza Watercolor Premium Artist Paints set of 60 tubes link: https://tinyurl.com/y33b7fvf

When I got this set of watercolors, I decanted the tubes into two plastic cases and added glycerin to each of the colors so they wouldn’t crack (and probably didn’t add enough, as mine still cracked.)
I stamped with black ink and used clear embossing powder and heat set it. The image was a gift from a friend and I don’t know the maker, sorry.
I used reds, oranges and yellow colors then dabbed them off with a dishcloth so the colors aren’t so vibrant.
After I finished coloring the flower, I cut it out and added foam tape to the back of it. I stamped a sentiment on another piece of watercolor paper that is square 5 1/4 x 5″ and then used the watercolor paints to make a background. The yellow was too vibrant so I added water to it and brushed the yellow across the whole paper to dilute the color a little..I decided to make a sun ray look from the flower toward the outside and took a flat brush and brushed orange out from the flower…then took a smaller brush and made what looked like rays coming from the flower. I added tear tape to the back of this layer and made a card base that is 5 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ and adhered the layers to each other. I added the flower with foam tape to the top layer, and put another sentiment inside the card. I added homemade Wink of Stella by using Liquitex Irridescent Medium to a little bit of water and brushed it over the flower to make it really glittery…
